Recently installed firefox primarily to use dta. It worked really well first few times using additional filter for FLAC. Now it wants to give me all the links on the page, including text and images. I've wound up with 612 downloads in the quee and can't find anyway to clear them without individually clicking on each one. Anybody know what I'm doing wrong? Any help appreciated. DTA help not helpful.

Deeznudts is on the right track as far as identifying the problem, but there *is* a solution. If you look at some of the other default filters that come with dta, you'll see some odd syntax. For example, the "Images" filter says: "/(\.(jpeg|jpg|gif|png|jpe|tif|tiff|bmp|ico))$/", and has the "Reg. Ex." checkbox ticked. If you copy this, and adjust the text, you should get better results. My "LMA" filter has "/(\.(flac|shn|txt|ffp|md5))$/", and I've never had a problem with it.

Googling for "regular expression" will give you more information about this odd syntax, if you have the urge to dig deeper.

As far as I know, the only way is to individually click them all. This is becuase most of the shows on the LMA that are in flac format are stored in a flac folder, along with everything else (i.e. images, text, vbrs and oggs). Therefore the flac filter includes all of that stuff since they are in the flac folder. Some shows are formatted differently, but not too often.
